Parkland County is a rural community but we're not just about farming! Whether you live in a multi-parcel subdivision, a large acreage or on a farm, everything you need to know about country life is right here.
Living in Parkland County
Agriculture is vital to Parkland County. If you choose to live among the farms and ranches of our countryside, there are some aspects of your neighbours' activities that may affect you.
Within the agricultural districts in the County, the primary land use activity is agriculture, which at times may generate noise, dust and odour. Farming can cause dust, especially during windy and dry weather. Chemicals such as fertilizers and herbicides are often used in growing crops and preventing plant and crop diseases and noxious weeds. Traffic with wide-loads and slow-moving vehicles are also common and may also cause dust and slow traffic.
Each spring, Parkland County's Agriculture Services department hosts Acreage Days. This tradeshow-type event includes information booths with County departments as well as outside government agencies and other local groups with valuable information to help you make the most of County living. Keep an eye on the events calendar for more information!
